FCS Diversity Statement

Friends Community School is committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive educational community.  Our school welcomes and affirms diversity in all of its many dimensions guided by the Quaker belief that “there is that of God in every person.” We actively seek students, families, faculty, and staff of varied backgrounds and encourage them to share their unique gifts to cultivate a rich educational experience. We strive to create a learning environment that exposes students to the value and breadth of differences, informs their perspective, and prepares them to shape the world.
